The ELJG League would like to thank Dan Van Horn, the Founder of US Kids Golf, who has made a generous donation to us, to recognise the hosting of the US Kids European Championships at several East Lothian courses every year since 2008. These monies will be used exclusively to provide financial assistance to Teams selected from our present and past East Lothian Junior League Players to visit and experience golf in the USA and to take part in friendly matches and Competitions. Planning is underway for the first such visit to South Carolina in 2019. A team of their Juniors are scheduled to visit East Lothian in 2018. Dave Warren, League Secretary.
